From professional interior designers to DIY home enthusiasts alike, one thing is certain; wallpaper is making waves in the world of home renovations. And one trend we’re seeing is a budget-friendly approach to tactile walls: faux-textured wallpaper.


Overview

In this week’s challenge, we want you to reach far outside of your typical toolbox and create a repeating design that you can’t help but touch. From grasscloth to marble, it would be faux pas to miss out on this challenge!

To help inspire your next creation, visit the blog for a faux-textured tutorial using Photoshop.
